Berry Gordy began Motown in 1959 with an $800 loan from his family-- and developed the music that defined a generation and a movement that changed the world. While the country was on the brink of a cultural revolution, one of the most powerful agents of change in the following decade would be his group of young black performers from urban Detroit. Pinkney takes readers through the history of Motown, from the behind-the-scenes musicians, choreographers, and songwriters to the most famous recording artists of the century.
